MPAA Lobbies For Wall Street Reform

Did you know the MPAA and the RIAA have already spent $5 million (combined) lobbying Washington D.C. and they are on track to break all previous records (in terms of money spent)?

It is no secret that the MPAA and RIAA spend millions in Washington to guarantee that their anti-piracy interests are secured. However, it turns out that not all the lobbying dollars go to secure the well-being of workers in the entertainment industry. The MPAA has also spent significant funds on the implementation of a Wall Street reform law, one that was proposed by the new MPAA CEO Chris Dodd when he was senator.
